Questions tagged [bibliographies]

{bibliographies} is about creating lists of publications and citing these in a document. If possible, replace this tag with the specific bibliography package you use, e.g. {biblatex} or {natbib}. For questions about specific or customized citation commands, add {citing}. If your question is specifically about BibTeX, use {bibtex}.
